Three powerful wildfires are blazing in California. By Friday morning, the Camp fire had burned 70,000 acres in 24 hours, destroying Paradise, a community of about 26,000 people north of Sacramento.
Near Los Angeles, the Woolsey and Hill fires have already scorched more than 7,000 acres, resulting in the evacuation of 88,000 homes by Friday morning, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The three wildfires are being fueled by dry conditions and strong Santa Ana winds. And on Friday, each of the fires remained almost completely uncontained. The severe fire activity is raising questions about whether climate change is influencing wildfires, especially in the American West.
